*Seth Stainback & Roosterfoot (Va Beach, VA) will be releasing their long awaited follow up to 2012's critically acclaimed "Earth & Worm" on July 19, 2014 with a performance at The NorVa in Norfolk, VA. Local up and comers Logan Vath & the Vacant will be supporting this show.*
"Fire & Steel" was recorded in January 2014 at the multi Grammy winning Dockside Studios located in Lafayette, LA. The album was produced by Anders Osborne (who Seth has long admired as both a singer/songwriter and a guitarist/live performer) and engineered by 3x Grammy winner Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Santana, The Fugees). When Seth was asked why he went to Louisiana to record and chose Anders Osborne as a producer he replied, "I chose Anders because as songwriters we have similarities, so I knew I wouldn't have to explain where I was coming from. I chose Dockside because a lot of people I listen to recorded there. Then when I researched it, saw where it's located, saw the river it sits on, and saw the house that the studio is in, I knew it was perfect for me. I needed a southern getaway."
Seth Stainback & Roosterfoot bring a little more of the "live" energy to "Fire & Steel" all the while keeping the sweet and soulful, yet haunting storyteller side as well. "Fire & Steel" will be released on Sat, July 19, 2014 at The NorVa in Norfolk, VA with special guest Logan Vath & the Vacant at 8pm. The album will be available online and in local retailers on Tue, July 22, 2014.
